Hi, I'm looking for a riding buddy or two. I get to Esholt or Danefield about once a week and a bit further afield about once a month. I'm 56, fit-ish and riding a hardtail GT, but looking at getting a Marin Mount Vision (a Christmas present to myself). Just need to get out more as my son is at uni and has lost interest.
You know you've been working on the bike too long when it falls over and you don't care!

  • Thanks for the advice stumpjumper, but I don't know if I've got the fittness or ability to keep up with a club

    We're meeting this Sunday 9th for a Peaks ride Ladybower route, meet opp Ladybower pub 10am for 10:30 off. It will be steady pace.
  • Sounds good, I could be up for that. How long do you think it would take because I might have to drop the missus off at Meadowhall

    How long do you think it would take ?, do you mean the ride? or what time will we be getting back?.

    which i can't answer as it depends on how people get on with the hills,how many pll turn up.
    but put it this way i'd like to be sat in the pub by 2pm the latest.
